“Father, hold on” is currently trending in Zambia after a woman disrupted a Catholic church wedding with her children to claim the groom is her husband who slept on the same bed with her the previous night.
The woman says in the now-viral video that there is no issue between her and her husband and they didn’t quarrel. She said he left for his secret wedding from their home that morning and she had no idea he was remarrying.
She added that the kids with her are his.
The video begins with a Catholic priest officiating the wedding of a couple when a woman’s loud voice causes a distraction.
“Father, hold on,” the woman screams as she makes her entrance into the church wearing a face mask with a child strapped to her back.
Despite efforts to hold her back, she pushes her way to the front of the altar and starts explaining to the priest that she and her husband were together in their bed only hours earlier and she’s shocked to now see him marrying another woman.
She says he told her he was going out of town for work when he left home that morning.
The woman was only tipped off by vigilant neighbours that her husband was about to wed another woman, after which she rushed to the said Catholic Church in Chainda together with her kids.
The groom has been identified as Abraham Muyunda. He works for Zambia Revenue Authority at Head Office and has been married to Caroline Mubita for years. They have three children between them.
